This week we are launching their brand-new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy called – All Great People.

To get us started on our journey to delivering All Great People, we are also delighted to announce that we will be hosting our first ever Disability Awareness Week online, starting on the 30th November.

This week will coincide with the United Nations initiative, the International Day of People with Disabilities on the 3rd December, and as one of a select number of organisations to have achieved the prestigious Disability Confident Leader status, we are supporting this day by hosting our very own week-long series of informative events which anyone can attend (customers and suppliers included).

Each day from the 30th November we will have a focus on different areas of disability, and we will be hosting short sessions at 12pm every day featuring talks from external speakers to raise awareness, share their experience, and to inspire us.

We have assembled a wide range of inspirational and motivational speaker sessions, ranging from Paralympic athletes to local heroes and a speaker from TfL, ready to provide you with their knowledge and experience and help to raise awareness of different disabilities, health conditions and the importance of creating an inclusive workplace.
